We are a family friendly fishing pier. We offer rod rentals, bait, cold drinks, sno cones, wine, cold beer, margaritas, snacks, pizza, hot dogs, gifts, and lots of fun. In addition to having a pier for fishing, we also have an observation deck for those who dont want to fish, but want to sit above the water and enjoy the cool breeze of the Gulf of Mexico.

We started early on a Friday morning. Pier wasn't crowded. Rented all we needed for a fair price. Place is cash only and has an ATM but it wasn't working. Had to walk to the nearest gas station to get cash. If you're used to freshwater fishing, fishing here is much more exciting! Lots of activity, great for kids who... More

Had a good time fishing here yesterday. Things to consider...sunblock/umbrellas/hats, towels for after baiting your hook, and a knife. They sell all these in the bait shop, but you may as well come prepared. Also, bring a net if you want to catch crab, because they're everywhere! We fished from 8-noon. Was worried that we may not catch as much... More

We has such a good time! My husband caught a baby black tip shark and I know my kids will never ever forget it! We watched dolphins the whole time and we got to see schools of fish going by for hours! Amazing experience!!!
